If you are not going to use gettext or gcc on your target system, there is
little point of compiling it for the target system.. If you use a scratchbox
style crosscompiling enviroinment, gettext (and gcc too..) is already
available as host tools. Thus you'll only need to recompile stuff you
actually use, not all the build-dependencies too..

Doing things by hand is just boring. We have computers to do the repetitive
tasks for us ;)
